SVU Promo for 21x12: Tucker's Back! And Barba Could Be Back? If There Is A God?

In the next SVU episode, airing in 2 weeks (so on January 30th), guest starring Holly Robinson Peete, Tucker is back! And he lied to Benson's face? About a possible sexual assault? Which he probably didn't commit (that would be A LOT) but which, maybe, he helped cover up? idk idk but they better not ruin him!

Speaking of sexy former cast members coming back, the SVU showrunner recently mentioned that he is working on Barba's return, and he's hoping to finalize it soon (omg), especially since he and Raul Esparza are close. Apparently the plan is for Barba to appear later in the season ("before the third act begins"). I swear to God, if SVU gives me Barba's reaction to Carisi being the new ADA, I will never trash talk it again, until it's cancelled in Season 34 :')

Oh, and none for Stabler, oop.

ONTD, did you watch last night's episode? I haven't yet (this week was super busy) but please, let me know how Carisi did in his first trial. And was the episode any good? I saw something about wings? Benson with wings? That can't be right. Anyway, how thirsty are you for a potential 1-minute Barisi interaction which may or may not ever happen? I'm parched! Also, I read all your comments and goddammit I want to reply to them all, but this has been a long year (lol) and I am dead on my feet every Friday. But since this was a Carisi episode, I'll try to watch and reply ASAP ❤️❤️❤️

Billy Porter covers "Allure" magazine

- Porter on being sent to a psychologist as a child: Porter" The hetro normative construct that masculinity is better silenced me for many years. I was sent to a psychologist at five years old because I was a sissy and my family was afraid. I love them. They didn't know. It was a different time. That's one of my first memories I have as a child,that something is wrong with you and you need to be fixed based on " You're not masculine enough" I carried that with me my whole life until like two minutes ago. You know?"

- Porter on shifting his mindset and and learning his value: Porter" Flamboyance was a silencing mechanism for a long time with me. Flamboyance was a word that was used to marginalize me and keep me in a box. The very thing that everbody' s telling you is wrong is exactly what you have to be".

- Some commenters online felt Porter's attire on the 2019 Oscar red carpet was cause for the emasculation of black ciset men. Porter:" First of all if your masculinity is that weak ,it should be challenged. Secondly, I didn't know I had that much power. But now that I do,you can expect I'll be wielding it every f****ing chance I get. Every chance. It's a calling,it's a ministry,it's intentional. I know exactly what I'm here for. And that's power*.

- Porter on preserving the legacy of those lost in the AIDS epidemic of the 80s and 90s and living life to the fullest. Porter" We lost an entire generation. But for me ,I like to live in the present and in the positive. And what's left inside of me is the fire to tell the story and fill the void. That's why it's taken me so long. I was at the tale end of those artist. I was a young'un learning from those people who died I've had all this time to take the morsel of what I had learned and let it gestate and grow. And it's our turn. It's time. I'm a part of the first generation of gay men ,ever,who gets to be loud and proud in the world. My generation is the first. Bitches are scared. And they should be"


The film " Like a Boss" is in theaters now.


Tisha Campbell responds to Martin Lawrence remarks on 1997 sexual harassment lawsuit

Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell Say They're 'Good' Despite Harassment Lawsuit in the '90s https://t.co/oNUanaqNAQ

— People (@people) January 17, 2020

- Ahead of the release of " Bad Boys 3", Martin Lawrence gave an interview with"GQ" magazine where he made comments on the 1997 lawsuit that was filed against him by Tisha Campbell,alleging harassment.

-- When asked about the decision to end the sitcom by "GQ", This is how Martin Lawrence responded. Lawrence" Well,how can I say this? It just was time to end. Let's put it this way.It was just,at that time,there was some,um there were some things that were being said that-" The "GQ reporter brings up the lawsuit. Lawrence" Yeah". None of that was true. It was all a lot of bull****."We don't need to talk about something that didn't happen, So I just decided to walk away from the show. People say it was cancelled,but that wasn't the case. I love Tisha. I've seen her then and now,always with nothing but love. I have nothing but love for her,I always have".

- Tisha Campbell was on " The Talk" and said she was "shocked", but said her and Lawrence were in a good place.

- Campbell " I can't go into much detail about the past because there was a confidentiality agreement, so the gag order says no. But ,what I can say is,I was actually kind of shocked". I took a day, and I said ," I'm just gonna hit him up" He called me within a minute. He was like," Don't read into what it is,there's a lot of people that's trying to bring up the past, trying to make it news today. But you know T, we're good. I love you, I love your family. Again , I'm not going to go into details, because I want to protect his privacy and mine. But I will say, by the end of it, it was nothing but laughter and healing. I'm so glad that we're in a good place now".

- Campbell allegedly quit the show after becoming aware of an menacing letter Lawrence allegedly sent to his estranged wife at the time. The producers sued her to return and Campbell counter sued with allegations of repeated and escalating sexual harrassment,sexual battery,verbal abuse and related threats of Lawrence. Campbell returned for the last episode only if Lawrence was not on set.Both sides settled out of court.

Fyre Festival’s Andy King has partnered with Evian to sell water “so good you’d do anything for it”

“One year ago, I shared with the world my willingness to ‘take one for the team’ to bring Evian to thirsty festival-goers...and unexpectedly became an internet sensation overnight,” King said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “On the first anniversary, Evian is dropping a special bottle with an all-new slogan in honor of my infamous team spirit.”

“As a long-time Evian fan — of both the water itself and the brand’s sustainable practices — I could not be more thrilled!” he continued.

As you may recall, Andy was the event producer that worked with Fyre Festival scammer Billy McFarland to put together the disastrous music festival in the Bahamas in 2018. King shared with viewers that he drove to a customs office where truckloads of Evian water was being blocked from entry onto the island, and was “fully prepared” to perform oral sex on an official in order to get the water through customs at the request of McFarland.

King first shared that information last year on Netflix’s documentary “Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened” in hopes of shedding some light on what really happened behind the scenes of the ill-fated festival.

A Common Charger for All Phones? The European Union Is on the Case

The European Parliament wants to introduce and pass regulations that would demand for a universal charger that would be compatible with all phones, tablets, e-books and any other portable device, regardless of brand. This would impact Apple most since they use a proprietary Lightning charger for a good portion of its products, such as the iPhone.

Wired chargers have been estimated to produce more than 51,000 metric tons of waste annually in the European Union alone. “Demand grows and with it waste and exploitation of natural resources,” said Roza Thun und Hohenstein, a member of the European Parliament from Poland. “We are drowning in an ocean of electronic waste. We cannot continue this way.”

Last January, Apple objected by saying, “Regulations that would drive conformity across the type of connector built into all smartphones freeze innovation rather than encourage it. Such proposals are bad for the environment and unnecessarily disruptive for customers.”

On its own, Apple made minor adjustments by moving away from the Lightning charger on the 2019 version of the iPad, moving to the USB-C port used on MacBooks. USB-C and micro-USB are also used on Android devices.

Wireless charging has also steadily begun to increase in popularity, which may help some users cut wired charging to some extent. But that in itself presents other problems and e-waste.

Original Yellow Wiggle Greg Page recovering from heart attack.

The original Wiggles line-up was doing an 18+ concert to raise money for bushfire relief when Greg suffered a heart attack at the end of the last song. He received first aid at the venue and is now recovering in hospital.

I'm so glad he's okay! The Wiggles were raising money for Red Cross Australia and WIRES Wildlife Rescue
